It is quite a drive to get to this sleepy little area in Virginia, but if you have any interest in U.S. History, particularly Civil War History, you need to stop here. It is important to note that the location is at the Appomattox Court House, but McLean House is where the pact/treaty to end the Civil War was signed. The guide I had at McLean House was passionate and knowledgeable. He answered question promptly and in depth. After the 45 minute tour, you were allowed to wander around the historic buildings and you can also take a short drive to either Lee or Grant's Camp location, where there are short hikes.
